MoMA PS1 PRESENTS
GREATER NEW YORK
Greater New York
October 11, 2015
March 7, 2016
MoMA PS1 (Entire Building)
LONG ISLAND CITY,
October 5,
2015
MoMA PS1 presents
the
fourth
iteration of its
landmark exhibition series, begun as a collaboration with The Mu
seum of Modern Art in
2000. Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of
emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area.
Greater New York
arrives in a city and art community that has changed sign
ificantly since the first version of
the
survey. With the rise of a robust commercial art market and the proliferation of art
fairs, opportunities for younger artists in the city have grown alongside a burgeoning
interest in artists who may have been overl
ooked in the art histories of their time.
Concurrently, the city itself is being reshaped by a voracious real estate market that poses
particular challenges to local artists. The speed of this change in recent years has stoked a
nostalgia for earlier perio
ds in New York
notably the 1970s and 1980s, and the
experimental practices and attitudes that flourished in the city during those decades.
Against this backdrop,
Greater New York
departs from the show’s traditional focus on
youth, instead examining points
of connection and tension between our desire for the new
and nostalgia for that which it displaces.
Bringing together emerging and more established artists, the exhibition occupies
MoMA PS1’s entire building with over 400 works by 157 artists, including
programs of film
and performance.
Greater New York
is co
-
organized by a team led by Peter Eleey, Curator
and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, MoMA PS1; and including art historian
Douglas Crimp, University of Rochester; Thomas J. Lax, Associ
ate Curator, Department of
Media and Performance Art, MoMA; and Mia Locks, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.
Considering the “greater” aspect of its title in terms of both geography and time,
Greater New York
begins roughly with the moment when MoMA PS1 was fo
unded in 1976
as an alternative venue that took advantage of disused real estate, reaching back to
artists who engaged the margins of the city.
Together, the works in the exhibition employ
a heterogeneous range of aesthetic strategies, often emphatically r
epresenting the city’s
inhabitants through forms of bold figuration, and
foregrounding New York itself as a
location of conflict and possibility.
